all blories to srila prabhupada. Accept my humble obeiscenses. Here i m in difficulty that whenever i am telling to my friends about our real nature that we are spirit soul, part and parsal of krishna, and our aim should be to reach krishna, to reach bhagad dham. But they ask me the authentic proof. So i told them a various verses from bg. But they then ask me whether srila prabhupada reached to bhagvad dham, and if yes what is its evidence and what is their position in bhagvad dham. Plz then how can we ans this question practically. Plz forgive me if i had done any mistake for asking such question. Hare krishna
I suggest you to not to preach them through your own words but through prasadam, kirtans, festivals, darsans, sadhu-sanga and scriptures.
Being your friend(s), they may challenge you and or take your words very casually because they may feel, "what good can this guy can give me? Let me criticise/chastise him". Thats the syndrome of Kali's population- Animosity (or enviousness) etc.
Anyhow bring them to Temple (or festivals in ISKCON) and let them speak with the mature devotees there OR if you want to preach to them yourself- then become mature yourself first by reading Scriptures regularly and participating in Sravan-kirtan on a regular basis.
"First be convinced then convince others"
Please accept my humble obeisances Sri Jagadatma prabhuji.
It was really a nice explanation. Thank you.
